What's the problem? If you don't mind and @shmu26 is ok to debug here :)
Fine with me.

The March update messed up Dropbox syncing on one computer, and Onedrive syncing on another computer. This caused high CPU usage, making one of the computers unusable. It took me a long time to realize what the problem was. I eventually solved it by deleting the local folders and letting them be rebuilt.

After updating to Creators, and receiving the following updates, I started seeing font problems in some of my apps. I posted on the Microsoft forum about it, and a few users said they had the same problem, but no solutions were offered.
Here is a screenshot from NoVirusThanks EXE Radar Pro:

Just updated one of my older computers from Windows 7 to 10. Works even better than before! I have an old Win Vista computer lying around. Too slow to check for updates and it's fan is on its last breath. Might be a small security risk but there is nothing really else I can do..

EDIT: Going to wait for the actual release of Creators then I will update. As for the font issue I have been hearing about.. Did you guys change your computer mode to higher performance/lower appearance? Not talking about power options.. NOTE: I am on a different account that was setup after I chose this option on my original account.

PS if you remove a few security software you use or play with i am sure you will have less issues. I have a feeling they might attribute to your issues.
When my wife's PC acts up, then I know it wasn't because of my tinkering with security softs. Admittedly, her computer has much less problems than mine.
Part of the problem is that we both have an unusual combination of English and Hebrew in the system settings. Hebrew is particularly prone to issues because the text direction is right to left.

Using Windows 10 Creators Update on our 3 computers, so far running smooth. I've noticed that there are far less troubles and bugs with clean installs than upgrades by the way.

I think product developers have plenty of time updating broken builds on newer version of Windows. This is why MS provides different update branches. So if one software doesn't work on newer Windows versions, i would blame the developers (not MS).
I agree that the blame lies with the lazy devs, but unfortunately, there are a lot of them, and some of their products are pretty popular here on MT. I won't mention any names, for fear of starting a riot...
